New ride...

Post by biglove » April 24th 2020, 10:44pm

Last Ford I owned was a Mustang back in high school, last truck owned was about 10 years back.

Possibly my last vehicle I will buy.

Ford makes nice trucks.

:bvbvbv: Nice truck bl, I would like to purchase the non-crewcab fourdoor version for myself.



I still don't understand why Dealerships need to place their added advertisement on the back of purchased vehicles. This practice doesn't happen in the northwest but is quite common in the south & east.
Suppose nothing a heatgun couldn't cure.



That said, I do like that truck!!

That's a good-looking car.

Dunno why pickup trucks haven't gained much of a foothold in Europe, and certainly not in PL. After all, the average countryside Kowalski could definitely use one. The usual "king of the countryside" here is...the VW Passat B5, in the estate version, and with an obligatory 2.0 TDI under the bonnet. Sure, it can transport even an entire family, or a few hundred kilo of potatoes. But a pickup can carry both a family and a few hundred kilo of potatoes.

Thanks, all. Am really enjoying it.

Didn’t realize that exactly three years ago yesterday I bought the Maxima, now the Ranger.

Ford did the reissue/update to midsize truck right. Is the 2019 Ranger. Can’t beat 0% for 84 months.

Didn’t realize the tagging with dealership stuff was a regional thing, Cod. Hate it and am going to try to get it off.

Congrats - the Ranger is nice mid-size pick, saw it this year at the Cleveland auto show.

I had one back in the early 90's and it really fit the spot of needing a truck but not a full-sized one.

You can take auto badges off in a couple of ways.

Heat the emblem up with a heat gun and slide dental floss or fishing line behind the badge and "floss" it off, clean up the adhesive residue and then use a little polishing compound to remove any "ghosts" the may be left on the clear coat.

Some recommend spraying the badge with WD-40 or De-Solv-it and doing the same this with floss or fishing line.

There are numerous Youtube vids on it.

Good luck on the de-badging and enjoy the new ride. :Thumbsup:
